Ollie’s Gold Wins 2013 Tasmanian Derby – Race Results

February 4th, 2013

The Listed Tasmanian Derby was won by Ollie’s Gold at Hobart racecourse yesterday February 3, 2013.

Ollie’s Gold won the race by one length ahead of Keep The Cash, who finished second, and Strive To Excel, who placed in third.

The three-year-old has now won three of his eight race starts and has earned more than $90,000 in prize money during his horse racing career.

Trainer Gary White was thrilled with Ollie’s Gold’s winning run in the 2013 Tasmanian Derby.

“How good was that! All those second placings in the Derby and we have finally done it,” White said.

“It’s been a huge effort by the team at Scruples Lodge, especially my foreman David Moore.

“This horse really enjoys those grinding finishes.

“It’s a massive buzz to win a feature race on your home turf.”

Ollie’s Gold was ridden by jockey Jason Maskiell in the 2013 Tasmanian Derby.

“He pulled pretty hard early in the race but I was able to get him to settle,” Maskiell said.

“I was confident at the 600m and he showed a great turn of foot.

“Give this horse six to 12 months and he will be much stronger mentally.”

Prior to his winning 2013 Tasmanian Derby run, Ollie’s Gold had placed a gallant third in the Listed Hobart Guineas on January 20, 2013.
